ICTS4eHealth 2021 Conference

September 5, 2021 @ 11:30 am - September 8, 2021 @ 6:00 pm

Following five successful workshop editions, ICTS4eHealth 2021 is the International IEEE Conference dedicated to ICT solutions for e-Health, especially based on Cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), and Computational Intelligence. The conference will bring together researchers from academia, industry, government, and medical centers in order to present the state of the art in the emerging area of the use of cloud systems in connected health infrastructure and applications, and the use of IoT and Computational Intelligence techniques in the area of eHealth.

George Manias from the University of Piraeus Research Center presented the iHelp project and the corresponding paper entitled “iHELP: Personalised Health Monitoring and Decision Support Based on Artificial Intelligence and Holistic Health Records” in the ICTS4eHealth2021 Conference.
